Data science has become the central approach to tackling data-heavy problems in both business and academia. Join Trent Hauck during a live AMA via Slack to discuss how data science is done in the wild and hear his recommendations for getting started on your own learning journey. 

Trent is also teaching a six-week course in Seattle on Python for Data Science with a focus on data acquisition, cleaning, and aggregation, exploratory data analysis and visualization, feature engineering, and model creation and validation. Students use the Python scientific stack to work through real-world examples that illustrate these concepts. Concurrently, students learn some of the statistical and mathematical foundations that power the data-scientific approach to problem solving.
